Bill MacKay is a Chicago based guitarist-composer-improviser. He has energized experimental folk, rock, and avant-garde scenes with his radiant songs, and creative and unpredictable approach to the guitar.

Bill MacKay's blissful harmonic control and just-outside-the-box guitar mastery are one with his compelling songwriting.

His creative voyage and imaginative influences are fully displayed on his Drag City debut, Esker, and his live performances are unmatched.

MacKay cut his teeth in various bands and projects spanning genres across the U.S. and has created an extensive body of original work while energizing the folk, avant-garde and experimental diaspora.
